Custom Current Selections Values


is there a way to set a custom value to a selection?

For example, doing some manual selections on my dashboard and then executing this simple macro


in the Current Selections box I see "foo" with a value like "692 of 32320".

I would like to replace this "nasty" value with a new string value, previously calculated in other parts of the macro itself.



Please, don't attach QV files, because I'm using still evaluating the software with the personal edition.

You can use the GetCurrentSelections() function in a textbox to display the selections. You will need to use the maxvalues parameter to avoid the "n of n" display. You can also use getFieldSelections() if you want selections for a specific field.
